Description

Theme for the weekend is Marrabel, (take this however you like- its’ history, what happens there, your choice, surprise us,)

Easy walking this weekend!

Sat.23 Aug: We farewell the Tothill Range and head for Peters Hill … but don’t quite reach it today. Sorry, a lot of road walking today but we do get to see the life-size statue of the famous buck-jumping mare Curio in Marrabel.

Sun.24 Aug: Heading up towards Peters Hill we will take a short detour to Marshall’s Hut, one of the largest on the trail, before reaching the hill. Then we continue south along the wooded foothills to Cornvale Rd. where we pass by the neat-as-a-pin property of the same name.
